Camping in

■ Winter camping can be-jdbrie

Camping is a great way to 
enjoy the great outdoors, but 
you'll see a few raised eyebrows, 
skeptical looks, if you tell others ' 
that you'll be camping outdoors 
this week. Yes, camping outdoors' 

* in Thief River Falls ...this week_„. 

during winter.' 

Becauseicamping is not your 

. typical winter activity. I immedi- 

~ ately thought some of Uie things 
other people might say or think, 
such as "Bmrl Are you nuts? Has 
something' happened to your home 
that has forced you jo camp out- 

~doors?'SftouId'we coHthe' hospital, 
your minister, or a counselor?^ 

Marilyn Sayler of Thief River. 
Falls said she saw and heard some 
buying . 
pout She explained that the, five 
members of her Pathfinders Club 
chapter called Open Arms 
Northern Lights, along with 15 
other.ihdiviuuals including some 
of their family members, were 
planning to Ieam about winter 
camping from Derral Reeve. 

Pathfinders Club in Minnesota, an 
organization of Seventh-Day 
Adventist church. Reeve said 
Pathfinders Club is an organlza- 
, tion similar to Boy Scouts,' but it's 
a co-ed group supported by die 

Thejpanicipant s in Thief Ri ver 
'Fallsi'were attempting to earn their 
Winter Camping Honor, which is . 
similar to a ment bodge. To earn . 
the honor, participants have to 
plan meals for three days, camp 
outside for six nights at tempera- 
tures below 40-degrees fahrenheit, 

make a fire in the snow, cook 

~ meals over tfie fire, put up a shel- 
ter and sleep in it, learn different 
safety rales for winter camping, 
and leam what the jproper dress is 

- Jor winter camping so that the 

campers stay dry and warm. .. ... 

Campers leant a lot from the 
experience. Reeve said campers 
Ieam how to survive and mat they 
con survive much more cold than 
they think. • ■ ■

When Jack LaFlore sold some

in Thief River Falls, he hardly .. 
expected what would come of a 
comment he made. 

LaFlore has been traveling to the 

, midwest to sell apples in the-falls 
for many years now. During a visit 
with the Donlins, he commented' 
that in all his years of selling baking 
apples, no one had nulde him a pic. 
He said he would, give $20 as an 
investment to anyone who would 
- bake him a pie and begin on apple 
pie making business. 

Kylie Donlin, 14, had made pics 
with some help from her mother, but 
had never mode one on her own. 
She decided to take' LaFlore up on 
,his 'offer.'" She made a' beautiful pie 
from Red Romas, and presented it .

defined in a number or ways. One 
definition is^a group of people Jiv-

"the locality in which .such a group 
lives." Yet another definition is "a 
group of people having common 
interests and sharing participation 
and fellowship." ' 

For some Thief River Falls resi- 
dents. Summerfield Place Senior 
Community is all of that and a place

An example of community spirit 
was evident on the.Thursday before

that exists at Summerfield.

Every year on the same day, 
December 31, millions of people 
celebrate the conclusion of another 
year, and ihc .ringing in the year to 
come. Whether it oe standing in 
New York's Famous Times^Squarc, 
at a year end blow-out party, or cel- 
ebrating in your own home, the only 
thing that matters on New Years Eve 
is having a blas t! 

"This year will be different" I 
chanted, to myself as we pulled up to 
the snow-filled driveway. Eeva and I 
sprinted oat of the car and burst 
into their house, eager to be olttof 
the car and free our freezing feet. 

As a child, my. family and I 
would travel the 250. miles to my 
Aunt Terri and Uncle Cliff's house 
in Minot, N.D., so that.wc could be 
together with them and my. three . 
cousins and ring in the new year. 
Each ycairmy cousins, my sister 
Eeva, and 1 would plan a huge event 
and eagerly hold on to the hoopes of 
•being able to stay up long enough to 
watch the ball drop in New York 

My size six feet tingled enthusi- 
astically in the warmth as I pranced 
around, happy to-have the feeling in 
them' once again. My nose perked as 
the smell of fresh, oven-baked cook- 
ies wafted through the air. making 
•my stomach growl. After unpacking 
and waiting impatiently for the 
adults to polish off the cookies and 
finish the enormous pot of- coffee, 
everyone piled into their vans and 
■ headed to the mall. After reaching 
. the parking lot. we waddled cau- 
tiously on the ice until we reached 
the large, spinning door. Inside, we 
decided on two groups: the four 
parents and us five kids. After com- 
promising on a meeting time and 
listening to a long list of instruc- 
tions of what not to do. we were 
released. Happy to be rid of our 
chaperones, we turned on our heels 
ana, drooling, bolted for our first 
stop favorite: Mr. Bulky's candy 
store to load up on sugar candy but- 
tons and flavor-packed gummy 
bears. After emptying ourpockets of 
cash on candy and caffeine-filled 

soda's we compiled our leftover' 
pennies to splurge on a "Happy ■ 
New Year" banner and a few five 
cent balloons. With three minutes 
left to spare, we stumbled, packages 
in hand, back to meet our parents. 
With Cheshire cat grins, we piled 
back in the car and headed for their 
home. While Terri busied herself 
_ concocting m deliciou s, creations, in 

the kitchen, my cousins, sister, -and I ■ 
decorated, the basement, hoping we 
would make it to midnight. Tlie five 
of us spent hours determined to beat 
out the night, coloring paper and 
chopping it into squared slivers, 
while we cut and blew-up the enor- 
mous balloons, the adults found 
' amusement in watching us work up ■ 
our holiday magic. TimefieW by and 
before we knew it, the clock chimed

two Democrats, sent nice curds to

muscles and bones grow and devel- 
op they may feel a.strong urge to 
move, climb, jump or run. In the 
winter when we arc inside so much, 
this "urge" can cause problems. 

On those days when your chil- 
dren arc rather "wild," won't coop- 
crate or are fighting with each other, 
it could be that they arc in need of 
drcn have an opportunity for regular 
physical activity you should notice 
that thdy eat and sleep better. So 
how can we provide physical activ- 
ity when it is cold out? Following 
ore some suggestions: 

•whenever the temperature is 
warm enough, bundle up and take" 
your child outside to run, jump and 
climb, even if it is only for IS min- 

When you can't go outside, try 
these ideas inside: 

•play a game of "Catch Me" by 
crawling on the floor. Take tums: . 
sometimes you chase your child and 
sometimes have your child chase 
you. Remember you can always set 
up limits and rules as to when and 
where-fhis active play will take 
place in your house. 

•Make an obstacle course. Use 
things in your house to go over, 
under, around and through. 
Talk about the weather outside, 
the cold temperatures, the wind or. 
the snow. Look at the thermometer 
to see what it says. Talk about what 
kind of clothes arc receded outdoors 
at different temperatures. -

Now that Cookieless January has come around the comer, you 

might like to read about this Christmas Diet. I don't know about you, but 

I'm sure I've stuck to it faithfully this holiday, season. Ten pounds? At 

.. least - : , 

Christmas Diet? Nope! 

by Craig Wilson 

I hate this time of year. Not for its crass commerciollsm and forced 
frivolity, but because it is the seosonwhen the food police come out with 
their wagging fingers and annual tips on how to get through the holidays 
without gaining 10 pounds. You can't pick up a magazine without finding 

-a list of holiday eating-do's and don'ts. -r: : ' : 

Eliminate second helpings, high caloric sauces and cookies made with 
butter, they say. Fill up on vegctoble^sticks, they say. Good griefl Is your 
favorite childhood memory of Chrisunas a carrot stick? I didn't think so. 
It isn't mine, cither. A carrot was something you left for Rudolph. 
I have my own list of tips for holiday eating. I assure you, if you follow 
them, you'll be fat and happy. So" what if you don't make it to New Year's. . 
Your pants won't fit any more, anyway. / 

1. About those carrot sticks. Avoid them. Anyone who puts carrots; 
on a holiday buffet able knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if 
you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving . 
rum balls. 

This month, we ask you to' check 
out the library's microfilm collec- 
tion. Past issues of all existing 
microfilmed copies of newspapers 
in Pennington County arc housed at 
the library and arc available for 
viewing on either microfilm reader. 
One ofthe microfilm readers has a 
loser printer attached to allow you 
to print out-whatever -you wish at- 
SO. 1 5/pagc. This reader/printer also 
has the ability to read microfiche, 
so those of you receiving items 
from other places in that format are 
welcome to use this machine for 
that purpose, also.

Despite bad press let's 
be good neighbors 

A local resident brought these comments to my attention. I sec 
by the e-mail addresses listed on th.e.story. that it went to several 
other residents in the community. I too found it interesting and / 
would like to share it with you. It's entitled "America" The Good 
Neighbor by Gordon Sinclair, a Canadian television commentator. 
It was apparently broadcast in Toronto, and is in response to the 
national election problems. 

"This Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the Americans 
as the most generous and possibly the least.appreciatcd people on 
all the earth. Germany. Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and 
Italy were lifted out of the debris of war by the Americans who 
poured in billions of dollars and forgave other billions in debts. 
None of these countries is today, paying even the interest on its 
remaining debts to the United States. When France was in danger 
of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, 
and their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the streets of 
Paris. I was there. I saw it. When earthquakes hit distant cities, it 
is the United Stales that hurries in to help. This spring, 59

helped. The Marshall Plan and the Truman Policy pumped bil- 
lions of dollars into discouraged countries. Now decadent, war- 
mongering Americans. 

"I'd like to see just one of those countries that is gloating over 
the erosion of the United States dollar build its own airplane. 
Does any other country in the world have a plane to equal the 
Boeing Jumbo Jet. the Lockheed Tri-Star, or the Douglas DC10? 
If so, why don't they fly them? Why do all the International lines 
except Russia fly American planes? Why does no other land on 
eanh even consider putting a man or woman on the moon? You 
talk about, Japanese technocracy, and you get radios. You talk 
about German technocracy, and you get automobiles. You talk 
about American technocracy, and you find men 'on the moon — 
not once, but several times — and safely home again. 

"You talk about scandals, and the Americans put theirs right in 
the store window for everybody to look at. Even their draft 
dodgcrs are not pursued and hounded. They are here on our 
streets, and most of them unless they are breaking Canadian laws, 
are getting American dollars from ma and pa at home tb'spend 
here. When the railways of France, Germany and India were

Moe outlines 
new laws that 
take effect 

by Sen. Roger Moe 

As we begin the new year, a 
. number of new laws will take 
effect. The. vast majority of 
Minnesota law changes dealing 
with policy take effect on Aug. I, 
while those involving state funding 
typically take effect on July I when 
the new fiscal year begins. 
- However, a handful of new laws 
take effect on Jan. 1 in order to 
coordinate with the new calendar 
year, or due to the need for longer 
implementation lead times. 
Among the low changes ' taking 
effect with the beginning of 2001 
"are those that have an. impact on 
hunting, health care insurers and 
providers, business subsidies and 
-divorce custody,-

them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Centra! 
went broke, nobody" loaned them an old caboose. Both are still 

"I can name you 5,000 times when the Americans raced to the 
help of other people in trouble. Can you name me even one time 
when someone else raced to the Americans in trouble? I don't 
think there was outside help even during the San Francisco earth- 

"Our neighbors have faced it alone, and I'm one Canadian who 

is damned tired of hearing them get kicked around. They will 

comej3ut.of_lhis. thing .with their flag-high. And when they do. 
they are entitled to thumb their nose at the lands that are gloating 
over their present troubles. I hope Canada is not one of those."

December 20. 2000 

Many readers may have been - 
seeing bits and pieces of the

reform. I checked the governor's 
website and. present to you, a copv

one of my personal heroes is retiring from his television series, and I am 

_sadjUst.thinking.oboutiL.This season, Fred Rogers shot hi* last regular- 
episode of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood". a 

As a parent of young children, I am glad to know that his series' wil[~ 
still run in re-rans and he will continue to work on his website and on 
television specials. But something about his retirement from his daily 
show feels like the end of on era. 

_ Over the years, MiMer_RogersJjas b«— 
his television character and show. But I admire and respect both the 
man andAis work..In a world of sarcasm, violence and materialism- 
even H^lldrenYprogramming and' on children's networks— he is hon- 

■ est, gentle and genuine. He makes people feel valued for who they are." 
not what they possess, it seems to me he practices the values expressed 
by the man whose birth was recently celebrated. 

With all due repect to Robert Fulghum (and my parents) all I really 
need to know about life 1 learned frdm watching Mister Rogers. Fred 
Rogers taught me: _ 

• to ask questions; " ------ .-... _ 

• it is okay logct mad. but 

• it's not okay to hit; . 

• it's important to talk about things with a grown up friend; 

• take lime to visit wiih your neighbors:

To the Members of the 2001 
Minnesota State Legislature: 

As you know, the budget I will 
present fo the 2001 legislature will 
focus on tax reform and tax relief. 
These pro- 
posals . will 
lay an impcry

tious agenda 
before law- 
makers for 
the coming 
months. The/

Disabled deer hunter permits 
restricted. After scvcraTreports of 
able-bodied hunters ^abusing the 
availability of disabled deer Hunt- 
ing permits, the Legislature decid- 
ed to further restrict and better 
define, who qualifies. In order to 
qualify 'for shooting from a vehicle, 
the 'more-stringent disabled permit 
now requires qualified. applicants 
to 'be permanently disabled and 
unable to step from a vehicle .with-

Permits are also available to people

and health maintenance organiza-

3-for-9 at'thc free throw line, where 
the Gators were 7-for-9. 

"We were being too tentative on 
offense at the start," explained Thief 
Rtvcr Falls, coach Bob Johnson. . 
"When we/ started to play more 
aggressive, we became more effec- 
tive offensively." 

For the second straight flight, the 
Prowlers used d strong third quarter 
as a springboard to victory. A- fol- 
low-up fast break rebound bosket by 
Sorvig gave them a 29-27 lead with 
4:08. into the period - an edge they 
would never lose-. . 

"I give our seniors a lot of credit 
for coming out hard in the second 
half in both these tournament 
games," said Johnson. "They've 
Seen around/ and they know what 
they have to do coming out of the 
locker room to get the team going." 

Koch drove through the middle to 
beat the horn and give the Prowlers 
a 37-30 advantage to start the fourth 
quarter. . 

Thief River Falls rebounds con- 
tinued to mount, and a three-shot 
flurry around the basket that finally, 
ended as a Justin Skjcrven bucket' 
gave the Prowlers their biggest lead 
_ofLthe.niglit._42-3.1,_with .5(08 Jo _ 

Echoing Johnson's comments, - 
Sparby said, loo, that his team got 
into trouble by. being passive on 
offense. "Wc got into a tentative 
mode." he said. "Instead of attack- 
ing, wc were sitting back." 

rhe Gators did, however, get 
back into it down the stretch. 

Down 47-41 after a- fast- break - 
basket by Myers with 1:59 on the 
clock, Badger/Grecnbush-Middle 
River used two free throws by 
Smith and a tumoycr-fed fast break 
basket by Curt Christiansen to pull 
within 47-45 wilh 32 seconds to to 

The Prowlers quickly responded '

Additional Walleye stocking is planned- . 

Red Lake progress reported 

Red Lakes Fisheries Technical 
Committee met Dec. 3 in 
_ Minneapolis in conjunction with the 
62nd Midwest Fish and Wildlife - 
Conference to review summaries of 
fish population assessments com- 
pleted during the 2000 season by - 
Red Lake Band and- Minnesota 
Department .of Natural Resources 
fisheries biologists. 
__Thc data showed -that the contin- 
ued harvest ban on walleye, and the 
first supplemental stocking, of 41 
million walleye fry in 1999, have 
had a positive effect. The committee ' 
also decided to stock walleye fry in 
the Red Lakes again next spring to ' 
help- boost the .walleye recovery 

"The results of. fisheries assess- 
ments conducted on the Red Lakes- 
during the spring, summer and fall 
of this year indicate that the 1999. 
walleye year class remains strong, 
and numbers of walleye from other 
year classes are responding well to . 
the harvest moratorium," said Gary 
Barnard* Minnesota DNR Area 
Fisheries Manager at Bemidji. 

The Red Lake Band and 
Minnesota DNR continued to coor- . 
dinatc and standardize their fish-' 
erics survey methods this year to 
monitor the walleye recovery. Those 

methods, included spring electro- 
fishing to assess the 1999' walleye 
year class and the. status of mature 
female walleye from other year 
classes; plus shoreline seining to 
assess young-of-the-year walleye 
and other species; and bottom trayvl- 
ing and experimental netting in the 
fall to establish an index of the rela- 
tive abundance of walleye and other 
species. ■__ 

"Analysis of potential natural 
reproduction of Red Lake walleye 
in 2001 suggests .that supplemental 
stocking would substantially 
increase the chances of producing 
another good year class, next 
spring," explained Red Lake Band 
Fisheries Director Pat Brown. 

Fry for the 2001 supplemental 
stocking, would most likely come- 
from Lake Vermillion in St. Louis 
County, the same source used for 
the 1999 stocking. Lake Vermillion 
walleye ore genetically similar to 
Red Lake walleye. 

"Because of the success of the 
1999 stocking effort, no stocking 
was conducted in 2000," explained 
Brown. "Supplemental stocking, as 
part of the Red Lakes walleye 
recovery process, is intended to help 
boost the chances of recovery and is 
only utilized -when there are. indica-

The passes can now be pur- 
chased wherever game and Hsh 
licenses arc sold through the DNR's 
new Electronic Licensing System. 
The big difference with the Ski 
Pass, however, is that skiers don't 
have to appear in person to buy the 
pass, making it easier to buy as a 
gift. All a Ski Pass purchaser needs 
is a driver's license number and date 
of birth, or similar information, for 
each skier. The daily pass costs S3; 
the annuql pass costs $10; a three- 
year pass cos ts S25.

Another change from past sea- 
sons is that only day passes wiU'be 
available at most Minnesota state 
parks und many regional and county 
parks'. Skiers wilF not be able to 
obtain a seasonal or three-year pass 
at these locations. Although it was 
announced earlier that Gooseberry 
Falls and Tettegouche state parks 
would be added to the ELS point- 
of-sale network and be. able to sell 
seasonal and three-year ski passes, 
it was not possible ,to moke that 
change at this time. As a result, 
these parks will only have daily 
passes on sale. 

The new ELS point-of-sale net- 
work includes about 1,600 sites, 
compared with only about 340 loca- 
tions that sold the Minnesota Ski_ 
Pass under the old system.' ELS

Cross country skiers, age 16 and

Pass while .using most public ski

DNR Trails and Waterways.

Deer hunters group 
stresses respect for : 
state trespass laws ' . 

. Universal respect for private land " 
and private landowner rights is the ' 
only hope' that hunters, anglers, 
snowmobilcrs und ATV enthusiasts 
will continue to have access to pri- l 
-vatc lands, according to (he 
Minnesota Deer Hunters 
Association. The group says it is 
very concerned about the rise of i 
illegal trespass in many pans of the ' 
state, und is instituting a public 
awareness campaign to respond to 
trespassing issues without creating "' 
new laws. 

The Minnesota Deer Hunters 


ethical hunting, which includes 
adherence to the state game and 
trespass laws. Additionally, over 
half of the 22,000 Minnesota Deer 
Hunters Association members own 
or lease private land to hunt on. 

Increasing frustration that private 
landowners experience with illegal 
trespass is caused by a number of 
factors. Some trespassers, simply 
do not understand the trespass laws, 
but ignorance is not a legal defense, 
nor is it acceptable, given that the 
'trespass regulations arc included in 
every DNR regulation booklet. 
Others disregard the trespass laws, 
thinking they won't be caught. ... 
Finally, recent changes in the defin- 
ition of conservation lands have ■ 
proved confusing for both hunters 
and landowners. 

If a landowner asks an individual 
to leave his property, by law the 
individual is required to leave 
whether the land is posted or not. • 
Refusal to leave after being told to . 
do so is trespassing. . ,. 

Currently landowners ■arc,, 
required to post their non-agricul- 
mm! lands once a year, including 
CRP, RIM und other conservation 
landsrif they wish to prevent unau- 
thorized access. There arc two cri- 
teria that landowners can choose. 
The first option is to place signs 
every 1,000 feet in open areas, or 
every.' 500 feet in wooded areas*- 
The other option is to post the pri- 
mary comers, access roads, trails, 
and other entry points. Boundaries 
along agricultural areas do not need 
to be posted. 

Requirements for the signs are 
that the letters must be two inches 
high, and the name and phone num- 
ber of the owner, lessee! occupant 
or authorized manager must be 
included on the sign, including thcir~ 

Unfortunately, some landowners 
are still experiencing illegal tres- 
pass even after they fulfill their 
legal responsibilities. Their frustra- 
tion is compounded by the fact that 
Department of Natural Resources 
Conservation Officers are often - 
unavailable to respond and ticket 
violators. While sheriffs and police . 
departments also have jurisdiction 
over trespass violations,' many 
departments -arc unresponsive to 
trespass complaints. Minnesota 
Deer Hunters Association hopes to 
encourage law enforcement ngen-; 
cics to make trespass a higher prior- - — 
ity. . 

"Landowners "are property tax' 
payers," said Mark W. Johnson, 

Executive Director of MDHA. 
"They have a right to control access; 
to their property, and also expect 
local law enforcement agencies to 
apprehend and process violators." 

Frustration with trespass prob- ■ 
lems has prompted some landown- 
ers to propose severe restrictions l<

Northland inducts Phi Theta Kappa honor students 

Northland Community and 
Technical College recently inducted 
eight students into the Sigma Alpha 
chapter, of the Phi Thcta Kappa

dents in two-year colleges.

instructed on how to keep their 
sleeping bags and clothes dry. what 
to wear and what to look for. for 
frostbite. They were instructed on 
how to use snow for water, and had 
to cook all of their meals over a 

While campers werc-requircd to 
sleep outside and do all their uctiv-* 
ities outside, they were allowed one 
concession — use of the bathroom 
in the Sayler residence. 

Saylcr added that she also likes, 
■"the fact thai Reeve was admonish- 
ing participants to "take only pic- 
tures and leave only footprints" 
when in the outdoors. 

Reeve lias had plenty of experi- 
ence with winter camping, when 
he was living in Anchorage, 
Alaska, he would take groups win- 
ter camping along the Iditcrod trail 
and greet racers participating in 
that epic sled-dog race. This event 
was not as exotic. It was being held 
in the front yard of the Saylcr resi- 
dence on Elm Street. 

Saylcr briefly wondered, what 
her neighbors were thinking espe- 
cially because, she realized, she 
had forgotten to Inform some of ' 
them of what was going on. 

Locally, 15 people were sched- 
uled to sleep in tents or an igloo- 
like shelter constructed by 
campers. Five of the campers were 
club members striving for the 
Winter Camping Honor, three were 
' club assistants, and the rest were 
families members curious enough 
to wan t to l e arn a bout and exp ert- 

L :\ 

ence winter campyig. 

"The children are real pumped 
up aboutit." said Saylcr. 

"Everyone is involved and 
enjoying all aspects of it," said 


Laughing children piled onto 
two snowmobiles, one of which 
was pulling a small sleigh with a 
couple of children on it, whipped 
by the large picture windows of the 
Suyler residence. 

Reeve stopped and smiled say- 
ing he told tnem they could have 
some fun after they had their camp- 
site prepared. . 1. 

Its not just a guy thing. He 
noted that while this type of activi- . 
[y- tends to appeal to the boys, the 
girls cun be just as tough, and they 
tc/id to be more receptive to. 
instruction. It lends to take boys a ' 
little longer to. leam the proper 
method for lighting u fire in the 
snow, for example, because they 
already think they know how to do 
it. Girls, on ihc other hand, will 
admit they don't know how and • 
will listen to instruction. ' 

Saylcr said the activity was not 
thrust on the kids. They chose what 
they wanted to study this year and 
set a schedule to accomplish their 

. Why do'it? Sayler explained that 
it's a good cure for cabin fever. It's 
nice to get outside and get some 
exercise and fresh air. It's also good 

It's a fun and practical activity,

Loss of 


! Loss of third flight may be long term loss for regional airport 

by Elizabeth Ott 

The loss of one flight a day in 
and out of the Thief River Falls 
Regional Airport is the costing the 
community in more ways than one. 

' Not only has it created a dramatic 
decline in boardings at the airport) 
has the potential to cost the city fed- 
era! money. 

Last- year Northwest Airlink 
announced that as of May 1, 2000 it 
would be cutting one of the inbound 
and outbound flights from the air- 
port's daily schedule. The decision 

' left the Thief River Falls airport 
with only two flights in and two 

flights out of town each day. 

Despite numerous letters and 
petitions requesting the third flight 
be reinstated, at the last Local Air 
Service Action Committee 
(LASAC) meeting on Sept. 27, 
Northwest made statements which 
strongly imply that Thief River 
Falls would not begetting a third 
flight back. In fact, Northwest is 
also planning to cut a flight to other 
small cities. Thief River Falls's ' 
flights cannot be reduced, because it 
is at the minimum allowed by regu- 

Reduced nights. Since the "Fly 
Local Program began in 1997 and 
provided a number of seats on each 

flight would be available for a low 
fare, the boardings had been 
increasing at the Thief River Falls 
airport. Total enplane boardings in 
1999 were 8,623— twice the total in 
1996 which were 4,409. 

However, since' the reduction in 
flights to and from Thief River 
Falls, boardings have begun to drop 
by about 400 boardings enplane and 
deplane) a month. 

At a June 6 meeting with Thief 
River Falls community leaders' at 
Northwest's Eagan Headquarter, the 
airline's representatives admitted 
that offering two flights a day is not 
an optimum situation for (he busi- 
ness traveler. The early morning and 

early afternoon flights make it diffi- 
cult for a person to fly to the metro 
area or for vendors to' fly to this 
region to do one-day business. 

Northwest cited low boardings as 
the reason for cutting the third flight 
at the Thief River Falls airport. 
From May 1 , 2000 to Nov. 30 Thief 
River Falls-fliers used about 54 per- 
cent of the scat available to them. 

Furthermore, most business peo- 
ple wont to fly at peak limes which 
are Sunday afternoon to Tuesday 
noon and Thursday afternoon to 
Friday evening. So while the popu- 
lar flights may be full, the mid-week 
flights still have few passengers. .

Group dredges up the past at 
Peder Engelstad Pioneer Village 

by Kathi Carlson ~ 


If you thought -Pcdcr Engelstad 
Pioneer Village was closed for the 
season, you're' right. However, if 
you're under the impression that 
everything's quiet over there, you're 
wrong — on Thursday mornings 

Beginning around mid-morning 
on Thursdays, the Village's interim 
director, Caryl Bugge, can be found 
in the company of Art Buringrud. 
John Jaranson, Inez Mostue < and 
Fem Williams. 

Caryl taps away on the keyboard 
of the computer as the foursome 
pours over photographs in an 
attempt to dredge up pieces of the 
past and Identify some of the faces 
in the pictures. 

Pcdcr Engelstad Pioneer Village 
is home to literally thousands of 
photographs, many of them contain- 

ing the faces of unidentified people 
who may or may not have resided in 
the Thief River Falls area. 

If anyone can figure out who 
some of these faces arc, it's the folks 
who meet on Thursday mornings. 
"I'm always amazed at the stuff you 
guys know," Caryl tells them. 

An Buringrud was bom in Thief 
River Falls, graduated from Lincoln 
High School and served as the local 
postmaster for. he says, "more years 
than I can remember." 

John Jaranson was also bom and 
raised in Thief River Falls. He 
enjoyed a 45-ycar career with L.B. 
Ham and, Caryl points out, was' on 
the original board of the Hart'z 

( Fern Williams is a fourth genera- 
tion member of the Engelstad fami- 
ly, and her late husband, Russ, was a 
long-time railroad - worker. 
Evidently, she has a take-charge 
type personality as Caryl has 

labeled her "The Boss." 

Caryl also has something to say 
about the fourth member of the 
group, Inez Mostue. "She's our 
artist," Caryl says. Inez is the cre- 
ator of the wonderful Norwegian 
Folk Art dolls collected by many. 
While she grew up in nearby Holt, 
Inez has lived in Thief River Falls 
for many years. She and her late 
husband were honored at the Village 
several years ago during the 
American Festival celebration as a 
Pennington County Pioneer Family. 

Between the four of them, 
they've met thousands of people in 
the community, and when it comes 
to sparking recollections, one seems 
to feed off me other. 

Each of the photographs is num- 
bered and as of this past summer, all 
of the photographs the Village has 
received to date — thousands, 
remember — have been scanned 
into the computer. Eventually, the 

photos will appear on the web site 
"that the Village's computer guru, 
Andy Filer, is going to build. 

In the meantime, Caryl and her 
group arc identifying as many us 
they can. Regardless of the who, 
what, where or when aspects of a 
photograph, few get past Caryl's 
Thursday morning crew without 
some comments, and she scrambles 
to enter every little tidbit of infor- 
mation into the computer. All these 
little bits of information, she says, 
are important. In fact, they're histo- 

Caryl does, however, have to tell 
Williams, Mostue, Buringrud and 
Jaranson to' slow down once . in 
awhile. "Sometimes I almost wear . 
out,'- she says. That occurs when 
one of -the foursome recognizes a 
face or place which gets another 
going with his or her recollections 
and all of a sudden they're not only 
talking about who- is in the photo- 

graph but where the person 
worked, lived, was mnmed to, 
went to church, did on Saturday 
nights, etc. etc. etc. 

A targe number of the pho- 
tographs viewed by the group

Wed.; Jan. 10, 2001 COMMUNITY FOCUS Page 7 -The Times 

Last week's winter storm nipped 
at my heels for three days as 1 
drove from northern Minnesota to 
the heart of Dixie. Bad drivingcon- 
ditions finally forced me off the 
freeway in Kentucky, which had its 
last major snow storm in 1993. 

Thinking that one motel is as 
good as the next, I took the one 
with the S33.95 sign;; Turns out, 
that price is good only if you have 
a coupon, are a certified business- 
. man, are very, old, or are. a member 
. of the military. I was too tired to 
lie, so after tax it come to $46.45. 

No inside stairwell, and the out- 
side stairs were covered in snow. 
The room was tiny, with a huge 
frost-covered window. On the con- 
densation-drenched window sill 
was a Gideon Bible, opened to the 
book of Job. 

The heater in room 226 gave 
you two choices, sauna or deep 
freeze. I alternated throughout the 
night The sheets were clean, but 
something told me that the bed- 
spread was last' laundered several 
truckers ago. The bathroom fan 
sounded like a coffee grinder. 

After getting settled, I set out 

into the storm to find a restaurant. I 

. trudged through the ankle-deep 

-Slush,' across iritcrseciions designed- 

more for semis than pedestrians, 
along frontage roads without side- 

I hoped for a Denny's, Perkins,- 
Pizza Hut, it didn't matter But lo 
and behold, through the falling 
snow I, spotted a'dimly lit sign: 
"Feast of India." My favorite cui- 
sine! I couldn't believe my luck. 

Indian restaurants, although 
most of them are called "Feast of 
India," are each unique. There are 

Down On 
The Farm 

so monv-different ways to prepare 
the basic Indian dishes that no two 
- Feasts of India ever turn out alike. 

As is my custom, I asked the 
waiter with the- biggest turban to 
help me choose a good dish. He 
shook his head. Eveddyting on ,the 
menu is veddy, veddy good, he 

I pointed to number forty-seven. 
Number forty-seven is veddy good, 
he said. I pointed to- another. 
Number fifty-nine is also veddy 

food, as is number seventy-two. 
veddyting is veddy good, 
. So, I asked, wtucn would you 
recommend of the three? Number 
thirty-nine, he said. His steely glare 
nude me hesitate to point out that 
thirty-nine wasn't on my original 

I ordered thirty-nine, and asked 
him to make it medium hot. 
Medium hot in an Indian restaurant 
is spicy enough to make your scalp 
tingle, your sinuses empty,, and 
your chest dear. 

Indian food is great, but the 
most enjoyable dishes are those 
which provide on excuse to dip into 
the sauces. Indian sauces are vivid, 
ranging 'from coo) to hot, from 
spicy to^sweet, from fresh to fer- 

'After I finished, the waiter asked 
if eveddyting was okay. I couldn't 
resist. I saiathe meal was 'veddy, 
veddy good. In fact, I said with a 
thumbs up sign, eveddyting was 
absolutely atrocious. . 

'.He liked that, and sent me off to 
my cheap mote) with a big smile, 
two miiuaflpthpicks, and a warm 
feeling of^cross-cultural under-

~.,> . Conflict and Anger . ... j 
Both conflict and anger are 
inevitable in family life. A family 
is, among other things; a collection 
of individuals,«ach unique, whose' 
ideas and behaviors will he slightly 
or greatly different from one anoth- 
er. ,' even your child has his own . 
unique personality. Therefore con- 
-'-' flict- will be part of- every- family.- 
/ Our task is to learn how to deal with 
it and to teach our,chi!dren how to 
deal with it Unfortunately many of 
us have a. tendency to try to avoid- 
conflict. Family conflict seems to 
give us all a case of fear, rather than - 
realistically looking at what might 
happen. Relationships are more 
resilient than we often give (hem 

~ credit for. — — 

In reality, careful confrontation is 
far more respectful than avoidance 
of conflict, it is more respectful to 
share opinions and feelings than to 
hide them. Studies of strong fami- 
lies show that openness in commu- 
nication is on important factor. 
_ Keeping Jamily^members jnformed _ 
and up-to-date includes the sharing 
of irritations, differences and anger. 
In a word, conflict is part of healthy 

— This does not mean Jhat we allow 
family members to be aisrespectful 
of one another. • It does mean, how- 
ever, that we have to leam how to 
share irritations, differences and , 
anger without. being disrespectful. . 
And that may be easier sold than 
done! The key to this is in the 
phrase ' carefar 'or. 'c an qg" con- 
fronigtion- It is an attitude recom- ' 
mended for all families!

|,,v Maldrig'Resolutions 
It. has recently come to my atten- 
- tion that, we Haye'intered aiiew'ccn- 

tury, and consequently,- a new year. 

Now, how this happened is a mys- 
tery, though the blame is often put 
on planetary cycles. However, wnat 
■ is more important at 'this, time is not 
the how, of the New Year, but the 
why. Arid, everyone knows why 
there are new years: to make comi- 
cal, vows of betterment that will 
never be implemented until two 
days before next Christmas when 
we suddenly realize that we're not 
on Santa's good list. We like to call 
these declarations of idealism "reso- 
lutions'." ' 

. So this year, in the spirit of all 
things new, I have made a^resolu^. 
"tion. Oric"thafis practical, original, 
and doesn't involve good scales, 
jogging shoes, or checkbooks-yet, 
anyway. I have resolved to better 
myselfby being more accepting of 
people. For instance, if I was to 
haven disagreement with a peer,' 
who, in a regrettable handicap of 
stupidity or pigh eadedne ss, cannot 
admit he or she is wrong, I would 
understand. This is because I have 
accepted him^shortcomings, long- 
ears, and all. . 
... Perhaps-bcing-acccnUng is not 
enough. Because though I grant 
some people are hindered by natur- 
al inconveniences, such i as selfish- 
ness-few- people-are- willing- tp-for- — 
five such unfortunate creatures, 
hereforc, I amend my resolution to 
be both forgiving and accepting. 
And so, should I ever -argue with a 
peer over some petty concern, such 

Mattracks displays- 
recreational line 
at resort Jan. 13 

Mattrack s is making a big leap 

as whether or riot he or she will need . 
a respirator tomorrow, I will'accept 

' tlmthe : ccshedccsuothWe'the'abii- 
ity to compromise or ag^ree with 
even the most blatantjif-racTs and 
forgive them. 

Now that I have defined my res- 
olutions and put them to good use, I 
encourage everyone to do the same. 
Take a moment in this new plane- 

. tary cycle to better yourself and put 
meaning in your life. Then forget 
about it, because deep down you 
know that is' your real resolution. 
Besides, Santa'sin the Bahamas on

The Tri-Valley Opportunity 
Council, Inc., is announcing a series 
of grant and loan awards that will, 
pour $1.2 million dollars into hous- 
ing and related services for families 
and communities ncross northwest- 
cm Minnesota. According to Jan 
Delage, Director of Community 
Services, the three awards will help 
address one of the most pressing 
- problems"forcommunity-lcaders= ii " 
the issue of adequate and affordable 
housing in rural Minnesota. 

Delage says each of the grants 
for which she applied, or managed 
the application process, was in part- 
nership with other service providers 
tn the region and will have a wide- 
spread, positive effect on communi- 
ties from Bcniidji to the North 
Dakota border. * 

"We are dealing, with a very 
expensive and difficult problem — 
how-to promote new housing and 
preserve existing housing in smaller 
communities. At issue is keeping 
people of all ages in the community 
of their choice and maintaining the 
tax base of school districts and com- 
munities," said Delage. . 

The Northwest Minnesota 
Foundation has provided $250,000 
to the Region One Development 
Alliance, to match another $250,000 
from the Department of 
Corrections, creating a revolving 
pool of funds for single family 
houses throughout Region 1. The 
houses are being built by the Inmate 
Community. Work. Crew. Program 
~and*are~sold"to"low and moderate- 
income families. 

The Federal Home Loan Bank of 
Des Moines, in partnership with the 
Bremer Bonk in Crookston, has 
granted Tri-Valley $400,000 l& be 
focused on rehabditation of homes 
in West Polk, West Marshall and 
Norman -counties.^ Repairs- will 
address health and safety issues for 
low-income home owners in com- 
munities and on farmsteads. 

The Northwestern Minnesota . 
Continuum of Core has been award- 
ed $6 1 9,000 from the Federal Office 
of Housing and Urban Development 
to address homelessness and chron- 
ic substance abuse. A portion of the 
funds, $119,000, will be distributed 
to regional Community Action 

Agencies through the Minnesota] 
Department of Children, FamUiesT 
ana Learning for activities that) 
address homelessness. The balancej 
goes equally to two facilities thai 
work with -chronic .substance? 
abusers, The Sands and The Centcf 
of -Human Environment 
Mahnomen. ' 

Delage says-piat each of these-} 

"awardsiwillmakcn valuable 1 cohtri-^ 
bution to real Ablution; that address'' 
significant problems, facing, 

, Northwestern Minnesota. She notes* 
that each award represents countless 
hours of detailed research and 
meticulous grant writing. r 

"Tri-Valley has pledged itself to- 

. partnerships with iiuiiucs and 

other agencies to best serve the. 
region. These partnerships bring 
together some of the tools that ore 
needed for communities to prosper 
in a very difficult and competitive 

.environment. This was a Christmas 
present beyond pur dreams. and I 
thank our partners across the region 
who so willingly contributed to this 
success," said Delage.

The glorious Black Hills and the 
stunning Deer Mountain Ski Area 
served as hosts once again for the 
third round of the WSA's interna- 
tional Snocross Worldwide Cham- 
pionship (SWC), the Arctic Cat 
Deadwood Snocross Shootout The 
biggest crowd in the three years of 
the event witnessed same superb 
racing on one of the most challeng- 
ing and scenic tracks on the SWC 
tour, one that's quickly becoming a 
favorite of both competitor and 
spectator alike. 

In both Pro finals, it was simply 
another chapter of the season's 
ongoing novel, "Superman v. Bpy 
Wonder." In the Pro Stock class 
undefeated top qualifier Tucker 
Hibbert, Arctic Cat, and Blair 
Morgan, Arctic Cat, both nailed the 
start with Hibbert slotting into the. 
lead. Morgan found a great line and" 
slipped by Hibbert going into the 
turn at the bottom of the hill. 
Hibbert tucked in, followed 
Morgan for the next lap and then, 
going into the final hoirptn turn, he 
cut underneath Morgan and pro- 
tected on the exit to lead at the line. 
It was a lead he was to hold all the 
way to the finish, although Morgan 
rode with abandon the last few laps 
hi an effort to catch the fleet young- . 
ster, but to no avail. 

Chris Vincent, Ski-Doo, must be 
wondering what might be possible 
if he ever could get a decent start, 
as he was buried in the pack at die 
. start. for^yet another race, but he. 
-again started picking racers off one- 
after the other, and even caught 
Carl Kuster, Arctic Cat, on the last 
lap but ran out of time and had to 
settle for a hard-earned fourth. 
Kuster claimed his second-ever 
podium, while Justin Tate, Ski- 
Doo, rounded out the top five. 

The Pro Open final was a replay 
at the front, as Morgan and Hibbert 
again led off the line, this time with 
Morgan in the lead. Hibbert got a 
run and came up the inside heading 
_ into that some final hairpin, but not 
quite far enough and backed off 
before the comer. The next lap he 
mode -the-same-move-,— nnd^as - 

Morgan defended, Hibbert made , 
another stunning cutback move 
mid-comer and led at the exit . 
Once again, Morgan didn't hove an 
answer and trailed Hibbert home. : 
As a rookie pro, Hibbert now has 
five wins in six finals. 
c After a fire in his race trailer on 
the way to the event, things got 
markedly better for Trevor John, 
Polaris, as he slotted into third 
early after a great qualifying effort 
and slowly drew away from the 
pack, which included Todd Tupper, 
Arctic Cat, in fourth- and Dennis 
Eclcstrom, Ski-Doo. in fifth. 

Hawaii's Craig Jones, Ski-Doo, 
claimed the Pro Vet final, but he 
was a ringer as for years he raced as 
a Pro in Colorado, while three dif- 
ferent racers claimed wins in the , 
three semi-pro classes. In the Semi- ' 
Pro Fan class, Adam Johnson, 
Arctic Cat, took die win, while 
Curt Peterson, Ski-Doo, claimed 
the Semi-Pro Stock and the Semi- 
Pro Open final went to Shaun 
.Cropo, Polaris. -■ ■

TRF second at Pine-to-Prairie meet... 

Prowlers' wrestling 
stock is on the rise 

Improvement in Thief River 
Falls' program was reflected. in the 
final scores during the annual Pine- 
to-Prairie Invitational high school 
wrestling tournament at Fertile- 
Beltrami Saturday. 

A year ago the Prowlers finished 

seventh in an eight-team field. This 

time around they placed second, just 

' a single point behind the host 

Falcons, 196-195. 

"We had another good perfor- 
mance," said Thief River Falls 
. coach Rick Yanke. But with a title 
- so close, it wosn bittersweet outing- 
he admitted. "Second place feels 
pretty good, but I'm pretty sure that 
the guys would have liked first 
place even more. All that needed to 
happen was to have one our our 
'guys to record a pin instead oT just 
-winning by points, have one of _ 
-the -Fertile-Beltrami -kids-lose- a- 
match by pin somewhere through- 
out" the tournament. It was that 

Red Lake County Central wound 
up third with 132 points, followed 
by Bagley/Fosston 117 1/2, Pelican 
Rapids 104, Dilworth-Glyndon- 
Felton 101, Like Park-Audubon 79, 
and East Grand Forks Sacred Heart 

Josh (Muttison) worked hard the 
past few weeks so they could drop 
to a new weight class," he 
explained. "This shift in our line-up 
will help the team because both of 
them should be able to over-power 
most of their opponents, just as they 
did in the tournament. Atone point. 
Josh got into some trouble and 
ended up on his back. The Josh of 
last year might have given up and 
been pinned, but the Josh of this 
year fought back and ended up pin- 
ning the other guy. That shows the 
improved work ethic that everyone 
on the team has." 

The Prowlers will be back at 
Fertile-Beltrami Thursday for a dual 
before making their 2000-01 home 
debut Friday against Roseau.

Lincoln High School girls followed 
just such a formula Friday to pick 
up a 38-33 victory over Detroit 

The Prowlers didn't come close 
to matching the kind of performance 
they tumedin the night before when 
they knocked off previously unbeat- 
en Roseau 55-5 1 , but they neverthe- 
less won their eighth straight game . 
with a defense that has been the 
team's strength from me start. 

"Last night (vs. Roseau) was a 
much better performance," 
acknowledged Thief River Falls 
coach Jeff Loe. 'Tonight we had a 
tough time getting into it offensive- 
ly. You could see we were a little 

_tircd.-BuLthcAfefl s c. hn s e nr ricd-us— 
all year, and that's what won it for 

' us tonight." 

There wasn't anything pretty 
about the offense on either side. The 
two teams combined for a 24 per- 
cent 21-for-88 shooting night and 

. 48 turnovers. The Prowlers shoL9- 
for-39 (23 percent) from the field 
nrioUurned the ball over 21 times. 

-The Lakers went 12-for-49 (24 pcr-

the close of thefirst quarter. Thief 
River Falls' offense perked up in the. 
second quarter when Brenda Kopari 
hit an open 3-point shot 'from the 
wing to tie it at 11-11 and begin on 
8-0 run. A fast break lay-up by Ayla 
Donlin and three free throws on two 
trips to the line bySara Jensen mode 
it 16-11 with 4:29 left in the first 

The Prowlers would never trail 
again. Detroit Lakes' l-for-10 sec- 
ond quarter shooting left the visitors 
looking at a 25-16 holfu'me deficit. 
Then it wos the Prowlers* offense ■ 


.they imitated the Lakers' second 
Quarter showing with a 1-for-ll ■ 
third quarter from the field. Becky 
Schons, Detroit Lakes' top player 
who scored early and often in the 
first quarter, then sat over half of the 

_ second quorterwith three fouls,.was„ 
bock on the floor at the start of the 

second half and hit three third quar- 

ter baskets to pull her team within 

"It made a big difference with 
Schons,.on the bench," noted Loe. 

the Thief River Falls lead to 35-33

Detroit Lakes center Katie 
Erickson - scored off her own 
rebound to finish a turanver-fueled 
fast break that made it ,28-27 in the 
first minute of the- fourth quarter. 
But she missed a free throw that 

with 12 seconds remaining to close 
but the scoring. 

Schons (16) and Donlin (13) were 
the game's only' double figure scor- 

Thief River Falls didn't have a 

great night at the free throw line, but 

would have completed a game-tying went there enough to make a differ- 

thrce-point play. It was [he. Lakers ence, tutting 18 of 30 foul shots 

best chance, to catch the Prowlers. 

Donlin grabbed ah offensive 
rebound and drove through traffic 
for a lay-up andfoul'that she con- 
verted into a 3 1-27 lead with 6:45 to 

, Schons pulled up and hit a short 
jumper to keep it close, 31-29, but 


cdmpared to an 8-for-17 showing by 
the Lakers. 

Detroit Lakes finished with a 38- 
25, rebound advantage, including a 
19-10 edge on the offensive end. 

The outcome put the Prowlers at 
8-1 and the Lakers at 4-5. 

Five Prowlers reached the finals, 
and three won titles - Jeremy 
Anderson at 119 pounds, Beau 
Abrqhamson at 130 and Jon 
Swonson at 160. Mike Hogen and 
Aric Berg wound up second at 125 
and 171, respectively. 

The .Prowlers' Colt Bergeron 
(103), Chris Lion (135). Josh 
Mattison (145), Philip Hermanson 
(152), and Jeremy Lion (heavy-

only loss of the day came at the ■ 
hands of eventual champion and 
stale-ranked Ben Billon of Pelican 
Rapids. , 

"For the most part, I was very 
pleased with the way our kids wres- 
tled," said Yanke. "We are generally 
wrestling more aggressively than 
other teams - in the consolation 
round, six' of our seven kids had' - 
pins. That is a big part of our suc- 
cess this year, and ids more fun to

blown out," noted Johnson. "I was 
very happy with the way the kids -

You're not going to win very many 
games when you turn the ball over

Minnesota bald eagle 
population increases 

Minnesota's bald eagle popula- 
tion has experienced a dramatic 
recovery, according to a recent sur- 
vey by- the Department of Natural 
Resources Nongame Wildlife 

In anticipation of the removal of 
the bald eagle from the federal 
Endangered and Threatened Species 
List; a statewide survey was under- 
taken last summer to locate and 
monitor active bald eagle 
nests and to determine the number 
of young produced. Surveyors from 
the DNR Nongame Wildlife 
Program, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. 
Fish and Wildlife Service, National 
Park Service and tribal bio logists 
found 681 nesting pairs, placing 
Minnesota behind only Alaska, 
Florida and Wisconsin. 

Surveyors in small aircraft visited 
more than 1,300 territories to deter- 

Endangered Species Act, Minnesota 
reported only 115 active bald eagle 
nests. By 1978, the bald eagle was 
placed on the federal Threatened 
Species List and a recovery plan 
established a goal of 300 active ter- 
ritories for Minnesota by thcCycar 
2000. -This goal was reached in 

■ Today the Twin Cities metro area 
boasts: more than 35 active bald 

eagle territories that produced more 
than 40 eaglets in June. 

Minnesota's bald eagle popula- 
tion is healthy, but it will take work 
to keep it that way, according to 
Joan Galli, a DNR Nongame 
_WHdlifc Program jpecialist. "There: 
are still areas where bald eagles pro- 
duce low numbers of young, and 
some eagles have high levels of 
contaminants such as lead and mer- 
cury," Galli said. "Overall, however," 
mine nesting activity, explained ■ eagles are definitely on the come-

As previously announced, the 
DNR plans lo go bock to annual 
moose seasons in 2001, Details will 
be announced in early May after 
moose surveys are completed in late 

The bear season is proposed to 
again open about a week earlier than 
2001 season is scheduled to open 
Wednesday, Aug. 22. The earlier 
opener is part of an 'attempt to 
increase harvests and reduce bear 
nuisance and damage problems. 

DNR personnel' will be taking 
comments at wildlife hunting and 
ings in February on proposals to 
-continue or expand youth waterfowl 
hunting days and to move the fisher, 
marten and bobcat opener a few 
days earlier so that it always coin- 
cides with the Saturday after 

Other, proposed regulation 
changes to be discussed at the 
February public input meetings "will 
be announced in late January.

lengths, quotas and bog limits will

New lake sturgeon regulations 
will ' be implemented on the 
Minnesota side of Minnesota- 
Canada boundary waters slarting 
March 1, 2001. Under the new reg- 
ulations, the angler possession limit 
for lake sturgeon will be one per 
. license year. 

All lake sturgeon less than 45 
inches or more than 55 inches in 
length,, as measured from the tip of 
the nose lo the end of the tail with 
the tail fully extended, must be 
immediately returned to the water. 
The lake sturgeon season .will be 
closed from May I through 'June 30 
to protect spawning fish. The season 
will open on July land run through 
April 30. 

Lake sturgeon stocks in 
Minnesota-Canada boundary waters 
are recovering from decades of low 
abundance due to over harvest and 
loss of habitat, according'' to the 
DNR. Increased interest and rapidly 
expanding fishing pressure directed 
at sturgeon hos created harvest lev- 
els that arc too high to support the 
recovery of this species. The goal of 
the new regulation is to reduce har- 
vest levels to keep harvest within 
targets, established for Minnesota- 
Ontariq.boundary waters that were 
set to enhance the recovery of this 
species. If the harvest of lake stur- 
geon continues to rise, more restric- 
tive regulations wil l be nodded to 
protect their recovery. 

DNR officials expressed appreci- 
ation to everyone who provided 
comments 'during the recent public 
input meetings and comment peri- 
od. Sixty people attended the public 
input meetings and 60 people pro- 
vided written comments on the 
DNR regulation proposal. 

Initial DNR regulation proposal 
for the Minnesota side of the 
Minnesota-Ontario boundary waters 
included the above and a harvest 
season from April 1-30. The onc- 
monlh- harvest season was dropped 
from consideration. 

There was strong public support 
for reducing the possession limit to 
one fish per angling season and for 
Ihe 45-55 inch harvest slot. There 
was also considerable public sup- 
port for banning the use of gaffs to 
facilitate increased sumilal of— 

restricting the use of gaffs, but this 
change will peed to be made at a 
later dale under different rule-mak- 
ing authority. There was strong 
opposition to ihe proposal to restrict 
sturgeon harvest to the month of 
April. This component of the pro- 
posal will not be implemented when 
the new regulations take effect in 
2001.- - 

The DNR will expand its lake 
sturgeon work within the Lake of 
the AVoods/Rainy River watershed. 
Angler surveys. will be scheduled to 
monitor lake sturgeon fishirjg effort 
and harvest during traditional time 
periods. Angler .survey's will also be 

expanded lo include the months of 
July through September. Also in 
2001, population assessments* of the 
fish community will be conducted 
on the Rainy River from Wheeler's 
Point near Lake of the' Woods to the 
dam at International Falls and the 
Little Fork River.

Radio collar study will 
aid DNR deer program 

released sturgeon. 
The DNR supports the concept of 

Forty-one whilctail deer remain 
alive from among 57 deer that have 
been tracked by the Deportment of 
Natural -Resources since last 
January in several southeastern 
Minnesota counties as part of a non- 
hunting mortality and migration 

The deer were captured and fitted 
with radio-collars last January for a 
study being conducted by die DNR 
Farmland wildlife and Populations 
Chris DcPcrno,, senior group leader 
at Madclia, said the sludy is aimed 
at determining the percentage of 
deer that die of mortality factors 
other than hunting. 

"Wc have good data on hunting 
mortality, but what we do not have 
|s good information on other deer : 
mortality factors," DcPcrno said. 
"This study will give us that infor- 
mation so that we con better manage 
deer populations in Minnesota." 

DcPcrno said another study will 
begin in southwestern Minnesota 
this winter. 

Nick Dcmmn, a University of 
Minnesota graduate student who 
has been monitoring the movement 
and mortality of the 57 female deer 
for the DNR since last January, said 
16 deer died of a variety of ca uses. 
"Jliree-died-in-accidcntrv. ith cars. 

four were killed by bow hunters, 
four were taken by firearms hunters. 

three are considered wounding loss- . 
cs from the firearms season', and the 
cause of death of two others is 
unknown," Demma said. 

In addition to the mortality infor- 
mation, Demma has been able to 
collect information on the move- 
ments of the collared deer. 

"Movemcnts_betwcen winter and 
summer ranges of up to 3 miles 
were common." Demma said. "Each 
of 'th t T fiv e' study areas " had at l e ast 
one deer that migrated greater than 
5 miles to its summer range." 

Longest movement, Demma said, 
was about 10 miles by one deer in 
the Zumbro Falls area. "That deer, 
unlike' the others, still has not 
relumed to the area where she was 
captured last winter, so it is not 
known whether her movements' are'' 
seasonal in nature or a permanent 
dispersal," he said. 

Demma noled that last summer 
the radio collar of one deer was 
recovered about 50 miles west of 
the Zumbro Falls .area where she 
had been captured and collared. 
"The collar had been removed from 
the deer and was found in a road 
d|tch. We have not yet been able to 
determine whether the deer actually 
traveled that far or just the collar. If 
what actually happened to that col-' 
lar, we'd sure appreciate hearing 
about it."

games at'thc regional level. Entry

87th Annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet lost Saturday night. 

My apologies to those mentioned here. It's not mean' to embar- 
rass, but hopefully make a point. 

How many people would give Governor Jesse Ventura a can 
of -a new power drink called "Whoop Ass"7That's what our 
Mayor Mark Borshetm did. I think it describes or represents ' 
Mark's personality. He's independent.' determined to make his 
' mark and unafraid to try-and-make a/diffcrcncc. Mark challenges 
each of us to make *a difference. 

Joe Kezar, outgoing chairman of the board, thanked everyone 
who dedicated their time and energy during the post year. TTiey 
truly believe in Thief River Falls, he said. 

Joe was referring to the many Chamber of Commerce mem- 
bers, but especially two honored for their lifetime accomplish- 
ments — Roger Reuter and Robert Flynn. These men took risks 
and invested their time and effort in this community. They 
-helped it grow and prospcr- 

Upon receiving the Volunteer of the Year Award, Jim Matson 
offered his emotional thanks to the business community. He said 
they have been very supportive of all the things that Cake place in 
this community. Matson's" list of volunteer involvement is 
immense. While it should be we who thank-him, he thanked us. 

Heidi Hoks. who presented the education awards, reminisced 
that in preparing for her son's sixth birthday, she asked him who 
he would like to invite to his birthday party. Without any hesita- . 
tion, he said he wanted to invite Jane Anderson, recipient of this 
year's Excellence in Higher Education Award. Jane came to the 
birthday party, sat ,on the ground, played sack races and cheered 
for the clown. Heidi said Jane made her son feel what we all 
need to feel — an important part of the world. 

Connie Stock, recipient of the K-12 Excellence in Education 
Award, said it was embarrassing to hear the list of accomplish- 
ments and praise placed on her. She also said it reminded her of 
how old she was: She recalled a night this fall when she was ' 
returning home from-play practicc^It-was-U:3b p.m. and she

were other things taking place in the world that were more 
important than the "Pink Panther Returns" — events like a presi- 
dential race recount and shootings in the Middle East She decid- 
. ed, however, that making a difference indie world begins with 
the welfare of the children she works with. 

This year's banquet theme wa£ "2001 and beyond. . ." With 
leaders like the ones .honored at the Chamber of Commerce 
Banquct-I think Thief River Falls is prepared to deal with the 
challenges that 2001 and beyond might bring. Grant Wentz, new 
chairman of the board for the Chamber said, "I believe that 
change is now a constant in all of our lives, and what is most 
. important is how we d eal with those changes. Outcommunity^_ 
has always met change head-on, and together I belieye'we can 
continue to do so throughout the 21st Century." 

I think' the Chamber of Commerce banquet highlighted the 
importance we place on the value of individuals who live in our 
community. Occasionally I wonder if there isn't a better theme 
for our city: "Where everybody is somebody." But when it 
comes right down to it, the people- living here realize that making 
•a difference in the world begins here in Thief River Falls. 
Making sure everyone feels important goes a long way toward 
making that change take place.

Urges efforts 
at property 
tax relief 

The Coalition , of Greater 
Minnesota Cities urged the 
Legislature recently to make 
Minnesota's property tax relief 
programs more needs based and 
expressed concern about Governor 
Jesse Ventura's plan to have the 
state take over basic, school fund- 

Rochester Mayor Chuck 
Canfield, president of the 64-city 
coalition, said most of the state's 
property tax relief is not distributed 
on the- basis of city tax wealth. It 
should be, he said. - 

"We need to direct property tax. 
relief where it is needed, not just* 

—where -it— is -politically -popular" — 
Canfield said. 

' City property tax relief, he said, 
has been under funded for years. 
State revenue sharing programs 
have not kept up with population 
growth or inflation, he said. In the 
last lOyears, city local government; 
aids have declined by 12 pcrcenti 
after adjusted for inflation and 
population growth. 

The CGMC will offer legisla-; 
don when the Legislature convenes 1 ' 
in January to alter the Local 
Government Aids formula and 
make property tax relief more need 
based. The initiative calls for an 11 
percent increase in funding fob- 
Local Government Aids at a cost of 
$72 million a year. 

"With these large state surplus-- 
es, it is time to fix the system by 
targeting property tax relief at 
cities where stat e as sistance is 

nreeded;""Canfield"saTdr~and - by _ ~ 
properly funding the programs." 

- While city officials from 
throughout Greater Minnesota sup- - 
ported reform of the suite's proper- 
ty tax relief programs, they did; not < 
endorse the governor's plan to 
reduce property taxes through a 
state'takeoverofbasicK-I2educa- ' 
don costs. Canfield said the coali- 
tion has serious concerns about the 
governor's plan because it lacks 
detail. ' 

Ventura'and his aids want the 
state to pick up an estimated $900 
million in school costs that are now 

paid by property taxes, but they 
'" identified " " 



The governor's plan channels. 
70 percent of the tax relief into the 
Twin Cities 'metropolitan area, ' 
while cities throughout Greater 
Minnesota are left to divide up the 
remaining 30 percent. It gives busi- 
nesses — mostly those in the Twin 
Cities — 53 percent of the tax 
relief, while homeowners receive 
only 27 percent and farmers 4 per- 
cent of the property tax relief. 

"When the plan is fleshed out," 
Canfield said, "it hopefully will 
address some of the coalition's 

—concerns" — 

As it stands, he said, the plan - 
does not solve the funding 
inequities : that currently exist 

'between wealthy suburban schools 
and many rural districts. It puts no 

. limits on excess levy referendums 
for schools, and' frees wealthy 
schools to spend even more. He 
said- the governor's plan could t 
"widen the funding gap between 

wealthy and poorer schools."

full-time 8 hours/day for nine months per year or full-time 8 hours/day for twelve months per year). This is not a 
new or recent benefit in the secretarial contract. 

The overwhelming majority of 29 drivers/assistants work four hours per day or less with only a handful of 9 
working a 6 hour day. The drivers/assistants ask for fairness yet by contrast they "cherry pick" a single benefit 
from a single contract. How is this comparison fair? ■ 

The majority of the district's educational assistants work 6 to 7 hours per day, the food service positions are 
roughly 3, 4, and 6 hours per day and the cleaners positions are 6 hours per day. These' contracts do not allow 
for a district contribution toward health insurance or cash in lieu of payment. The bus drivers/assistants should 
be compared to these employee groups and not the secretaries. 

The drivers compare themselves to drivers in other communities as it relates to wages and benefits. 
Let's examine this claim. 

a) It is very difficult to interpret what the contract negotiations might have been in other communities and then 
say Thief River Falls should be the same. v 

b) The^five^comparisons schools used by the drivers/assistants are not within the geographical area for --- 

applipants to the Thief River Falls School District. 

c) The School Board feels that their last proposal of 3.5% plus steps the first year (an increase of $.35/hr. for a 
starting driver, $.46/hr. fo,r a top driver plus an increase of $.15/hr. for- all on the shift differential) and 4% plus 
steps the second year (ah increase of $.42/hr. for a starting driver, $.54/hr. for a top driver plus an Increase of 
$.15/hr. for all on the shift differential) is a fair offer. There are also other concessions the School Board 
made that improve-the-financlal-package'for-the-MSEA-gr6upr~ — :— ^~ 

d) The School Board has settled contracts with other labor groups for 2000-02 with 3.5% and 4% salary 
increases. The average total cost to the District of the five (5) contracts recently settled over two years is 
11.76%. The MSEA last proposal would cost the district 32.3%. How is this fair? 

4. The drivers/assistants said that arbitration would be a fair way to settle the contract. The district was and is 
ready to submit to a "LAST BEST OFFER, TOTAL PACKAGE, WINNER TAKES ALL" type of arbitration that 
excludes the item of health insurance. MSEA refused because they would have to significantly modify their 
last proposal to be successful. 

The MSEA last offer of a rbitra tion was for conventional arbitration which' allows an arbitrator to select a 
"'" "winner" arid -'loser" on eachindlvidual item submitted for arbitration. If they leave the health insurance out, 
they certainly stand to increase the financial part of the settlement to make up for it significantly increasing the 
cost to the district over Its last proposal. 

How is it fair to have a third party, that has no vested interest in this community or school district, come in 
and decide how much the district should pay the drivers/assistants with tax payer money? 

5.— This-is-the-second-strike-by-this-group-in-the-last-two-years=rls-the-threat-of-a-strikeror-a-strlkerthe-onlv- 
method this union has to negotiate its labor agreements? 

The School Board came back to the negotiating table two years ago in an attempt to quickly settle the first 
strike in the interest of the students, parents, and community.' Now two years later the drivers/assistantSihave 
thrust us into a strike situation again with unreasonable requests for contract settlement.' How is this fair to the 
students, parents/the community, and the TAXPAYERS!

future of the association." 

There's no denying changes 
that are taking place in the dairy

have been positive, but the dairy

.Healthy people who could giyc 
blood bnt don t often have some 
. pretty silly reasons for not doing so. 
Without realizing how important 
■ their blood donation could be for 
someone in heed, many give some 
■of the following reasons for.not giv- 
ing W6pd:' i: : . , .:';'. 

* "No one has ever asked me." 
Consider yourself invited! The. 
Thief River Falls Women of Today 
will sponsor a blood drive on 

~ TuesdayrJanuary-23 from-l-to-7- 
p.nt and Wednesday, January 24, 
from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at^ Redeemer 
Lutheran Church. To moke an 
appointment, call Caron Allen at 

* "Other people must be giving 
enough blood." That is wrong. The 
demand for blood and blood prod- 
ucts is constantly increasing. 

* "I don't have any blood to 
spare." If you weigh at least 110 
pounds andaie in good health, you 
do have enough to spare. .The 
human body contains about 10 to 12 
pints of blood. 

* "I don't like needles." Most 
people would agree. However' the 
actual needle stick in your arm 
should feel no more than a quick 
pinch. There should not be-any dis- 
comfort while donating. What's a 
pinch when saving a life? 

* "My insurance covers the blood 
I'll need." Dollar bills and insurance 
polices can't be transfused. That 
takes- an adequate supply of blood. 

right here or close by when a patient 
needs it. 

• "I'm too busy." Are you really 
too b.Osy to spare an hour a few 
times a year?" You can safely 
donate blood every eight weeks on a 
regular basis. 

• "I might get AIDS from donat- 
ing blood. ATI materials used dur- 
ing the donation process are sterile 
and used only once. You cannot 
contract AIDS or any other disease 

- from donating blood; — — ' 

• "It's not my responsibility." 
Everyone in the community has a_ 
stake in an adequate blood supply. If 
a patien' u a transfusion, the 
necessary blot* will be available 
only because a. volunteer donor felt 
that giving blood was worth die

Greetings from Miami, the land 
of peeling pink and turquoise paint. 
Miami Is one of those places I 
would never, go unless I had a 
friend there with' an extra room. 

That extra room is in a neigh- 
-borhood filled -with-palms, beauti- - 
ful wild parrots, green grass, and 
decent_looking apartment build-, 
tags. Looks great; but there are cer- 
tain streets I have been warned not 
to turn down lest I end up as a sta- 

Oh well. It is warm, to me at 
least. Last week .temperatures 
plunged into the lower' sixties, 
which brought on a loud round of 
complaining at the local cafe. 
While taking walks, I have been 
bawled out by no fewer than five 
Jewish grandmothers for not wear- 
tag a cap. 

Yes, they have a local breakfast 
cafe here. Karen the owner, whose 
hair is died the same brownish red 
used by manywomen around here, 
serves 12 types of bagels. The old 
men talk about condo deals, stock 
scams and interest rates, not 
machinery and crops. 

When I visited New .York City, I 
wondered what they did with peo- 
ple when they got too old and 
decrepit to keep up with the frantic- 
pace of life there. 

Turns" out, New York sends its ' 
cigar chomping retired men and 
their red-haired wives to Miami, 
.where they are outfitted with 
brightly colored polyester slacks 

T stacked up in nigh rise condos. 

Take a walk down a Miami 
street in the evening. Through the 
_ open-windows of the condos you 
will overhear dozens of half deaf 
New Yorkers conversing with their 
spouses in a tone of voice which 
would bring a visit from the county 
social worker in the Midwest 

■ People yell at people they know, 
they yell at people they don't know. 
They yell at waiters and waitresses. 
They yell el the parking attendant. 
My nerves get frayed from all the 

Down On 
The Farm 

yelling, but nobody else seems to 

. I have heard of funeral pre-plan- 
ning. In Miami, it seems that many 
of - the people have been pre- 
.embalmed. Caked on make-up. 
-Dyed- hair, -fake -hair, .purple-hair: 
Heavy carnation scented perfumes. 
An unusually high toupee-per-capi- 
ta ratio. 

There's nothing more hideous 
than people with loo much money 
who refuse to age gracefully, who 
try to convince themselves with 
hair dyes and facelifts that they arc 
still thirty. 

But retirees are only part of 
Miami. Go down to the beach, and 
you will see mile after mile of 
sights we won't describe here. You 
will hear languages from all over 
the world. 

On the sidewalk in front of an 
Italian cafe, I paused by a table 
jammed with four generations of a 
large Italian- family, all talking at 
the same time, in Italian, waving 
their hands, eating pasta and rolling 
their r's— a delightful scene 
straight out of a movfe. • 

Miami is unlike any place I have 
ever been. Best of all, it can be 
viewed in a t-shirt and shorts, on 
-fooirondin-Januory.There's a lot to 
be said for that.

Remember that the Thie(,River

. conflict This. we know. What we 
may not know is how to handle this 
conflict Studies on anger suggest 
effective steps in dealing with anger 
and conflict involve appropriate 
expression and a readiness to deal 
with the issues that caused the 

. anger, in other words, "careful" or 
■■caring" confrontation. You may 
have to train yourself to thinfrdif- 
ferently and this in turn can show 
your children how to handle their 
anger and conflict 

Look behind the anger. Consider 
what is causing the anger -rather 
than focusing on the anger itself. 
Anger is usually a secondary emo- 
tion. For example, you or_your 

-spouse may- feel :angrjr when your 

--cnild-misbehaves-in public;-— But, - 
first you probably felt frustrated or 
embarrassed. Or your child may 
feel angry when a playmate takes 

-bis toy, but first he may have felt 
helpless or taken advantage of, - . 

_ „Li3tcn.cnreful]y_ when ..someone, 
else shares or reports their anger to 
you. Listen for feelings other than 
the anger. By listening for and try- 
ing to identify' all the feelings, a 
more helpful response can be made. 
This is crucial. We all experience a 
deeply felt desire to be neord and 
understood. When no one seems to 
understand, anger con escalate: On 
the other hand when someone lis- 
tens carefully and tries to hear and 
understand, anger diminishes. Be 
willing to look for other feelings 
behind the anger. As you do this, 
you will show yourchildrcn by your.. 

* example, how to do the same.

MAELC council voted out its most 
recent package of grants at the Dec.

this most recent grants package; 

ways," Plonski said. "When folks, 
have creative ideas about how to 
improve their educational program- 
ming in on agricultural context we 
have been in a position to fund some 
of those concepts so that they can 
become n reality. In the end, it takes 
financial resources to provide quali- 
ty programming. I am proua that 

MAELG-will-have- provided- over — l^ELX-lto-been-ableto provide 
$725,000 in' competitive grants," organizational and financial support 
scholarships, sponsored projects and for so many agricultural education 

awards since 'its establishment in 
1997. .

grants program is intensely compet- 
itive and that in this latest grants 
round 'there were approximately 

initiatives over the years.'

Paperless filing how available 

For the first time ever, almost 
every Minncsotons will have an 
opportunity tc file a totally paper- 
less tax return, thanks to a new elec- 
tronic signature option launched this 
year by L the Internal, Revenue 

• Service. 
. "Nobody likes paperwork, 

» including the IRS," said /John 
Bjnnion, senior commissioner's 
representative for the IRS-'-thc 
agency's highest-ranking official in 
Minnesota. "That's why we're espe- 

- ciolly pleased to introduce this new- 
paperless filing option." 

The electronic signature option is 
available to most individuals who 
choose to file their returns electron- 
ically. This includes those who use 

. the services of a professional tax 
preparer. It is not available to tax- 
payers who send a paper return to 
the IRS. 

For tax year 2000, the electronic 

signature consists of three parts: a 
personal identification number cho- 
sen by the taxpayer, known as a 

' self-select PIN; the adjusted gross 
income from the taxpayer's 1999 
federal income tax return; and the 
taxpayer's 1999 tax liability. 
Procedures for electronically -sign- : 
ing a return are built into most tax 
reparation software packages. 

The new electronic signature 
option markedly expands the avail-' 
ability' of paperless tax filing, the 
LRS said; In recent years, the IRS 
offered a paperless filing option to a ■' 
limited number of taxpayers by 
assigning them ,a .PIN-like. e-file 
customer -number. -Iruroost.cases, 
Boweveijevcn fofce^JvhVfilea* their 

"'returns 'electronically '■still'-had to 

;mail &J>oper signature document to 
the IRS. Eliminating paper from the 

tax system significantly reduces the 
number of mistakes made by both 
taxpayers and 4he LRS and enables 
the tax agency to process tax returns 
and refund payments more quickly 
and accurately. ... 

Like e-commere'e; ,IRS e-file. 
once considered the wave' of the 
future, is rapidly becoming a. the 
wave of the' present. Last year, some 
686.0Q0 Minnesotans 'filed their 
returns electronically — about 30 
percent of the more than 2.3 million 
-returns-receivedfrom people in the' . 
state. That number is expected to 
approach the 800,000 mark this 

.^ A growing number of companies 
now offer free or low-cost electron- • 
jc filing services to many of their 
customers. For information about 
these companies, check out the 
Partners Page on the LRS website. 
The address is 
svs/partners.html. ' - ' 

For those who prefer to use a 
professional tax preparer, the IRS 
website includes aaatabase of tax 
professions and other businesses 
that offer electronic filing services. 
More than 2,000 businesses now 
"offer these services -in 'Minnesota, 
including over 400 that joined* the 
program during the post year. 

According to a recent customer 
satisfaction survey, people who e- ' 
file their returns give the program 
high marks: The overall customer 
satisfaction score for electronic fil- 
ing is 75, according, to the American 
Customer Satisfaction Index survey 
sponsored by. tfie^Bres^efix 
Managernenf CcundPThls- surpass* 
es the score of 71.2 for comparable 
services in the private sector and far'- 
outpaces the 48 scored by paper tax ' 

filing. In addition, 81 percent of the 
respondents say they intend to file 
electronically, again.

Q: I called the Social Security 
Administration (SSA) national 
number to make an apTMmtrnent 
and. the lepresentaiive said that I 
could file my claim right then by 
: pnone. What .was that about? .... 
A: The. SSA is trying to improve 
client access and recently started a 
national program for people to file 
selea recrement or survivor claims 
lmmc<fifiMy rather than by making 
a future armlntmenL This process 
can only .be accessed through the 
national number, 1-800-772-1213, 
not through local . offices. The 
national SSA representative screens 
the call to see if the potential appli- 
cation meets guidelines and, when 
possible, offers to refer Jhe caller to 
special sites across the country to 
have the claim taken. If they want 
to, the person 'then works with one 
of those sites, not the local office", to 

-complete an amlication.,They will 
mail- the 'application to/ sign. and 
return with any neededproof, such 
as a birth certificate or W-2 form, to 
the site which will then process trie 
claim and return Jhe evidence. All 
SSA officeshave completed nppli-" 
cations by telephone for manyyears 
in this way. What-is differentabout 

.lhis-program is-the-immediBterefcr-- 

ral to have .'the claim .completed 
'rather than 'waiting for an appoint- 
ment and the use of national sites 
for taking these applications. Again, 
presently this new method of filing 
an .appficaUon.Js. only, .available 
through the national number listed 
above, not through local -offices. 
Appointments for local offices, 
whether to complete an application 
in person at the office or by phone, 
continue to be marie.. through. the 
national number. ' ... -.i.' 
Q: Is the Social Security check sent 
for the current month or something 

A: Social Security checks are : for 
the prior month, to other words, the - 
check that comes in January is for 
the month of December. This;is the 
same .for 'all of the Social Security 
programs . whether, based oaJretirc- 
ment, survivors. or disability."The 
actual check receipt date, iifstag- 
gered throughout the monu.'The 
Social Security Adr^iistration also ' 
administers the need-based 
Supplemental' Security Income 
(SSI) program. Checks for that pro- 
"granf are for the : current month so 
the check received in January is for

farmers to 
consider exports 

Amid the furor over StarUnk 
corn, Minnesota Agriculture 
Commissioner Gene Hugoson b 
. advising farmers to' give them- 
selves a powerful marketing 
advantage by planting only export- 
approved corn varieties for the 
2001 growing season. He also. is. 
asking seed companies to sell only 
export-approved varieties I_ 

Although approved for domes- 
tic use as an animal feed, the 
StarUnk com variety- was hot 
approved for export This means 
"foreign customers con refuse 
American com shipments found to 
have even a- small amount of 
SlarLink in them. This has become 
a problem for American farmers, as 
shiploads of American com have 
been rejected due to the presence 
of StarLink. The export customers 
then turn elsewhere for their com, 
and the rejected U.S. com is added 
to the already-overloaded domestic 
com supply. 

"If Minnesota fanners are to 
avoid a repeat of the StarLink fias- 
co, we must learn from this experi- 
ence," Commissioner ■ Hugoson 
said. "Minnesota exports nearly -a 
third of its com crop. If we want to 
continue this relationship with for- 
eign customers, we need to take 
their preferences into account. That 
means planting com that Europe 
and Japan will accept," ' 

Since StarLink has been 
removed from the seed com mar-" 
ket and no other varieties have the 
split registration for domestic feed 
and food use, it would be tempting 
to think' this problem' is over. 
However, several com varieties 
currently foreale are not approved' 
for export. Anti-btotech activists 
continue to test com and com prod- 
ucts in Europe and Japan, when 
• they "find traces of banned" VanV 
etics.'Tt" hurts the credibility of 
America's grain handling 'system 
and gives foreign customers a rea- 
son to look to America's competi- 
tors for their com. 

Commissioner Hugoson said 
the Minnesota Department of 
Agriculture is working with the 
grain industry to develop an infra- 
structure that will allow segrega- 
tion of various types of com and 
other agricultural products. So far, 
however, there is no effective sys- 
tem in place to separate com des- - 
. lined for export from com to be - 
used domestically. The task will be 
easier if ; export-banned varieties 
are not planted until ah effective 
segregationsys'tem is in place, v.; 
"Any identity preserved system 
will require buffer zones, extensive 
cleaning procedures, and separate " 
handling. and . storage," 
Commissioner Hugoson salt 
"This is coming, but it takes time to 
set up. A gooa short-term solution 
is for farmers to plant only export- 
approved varieties and for seed 
companies to sell only export-: 
approved varieties. That way .'we 
can reassure foreign customers that 
everything they get. from 
Minnesota . meets their require- 
ments. That would give us an 
advantage in the export niarkets:' 

Commissioner Hugoson advises 
Minnesota farmers to do their port 
by checking the label and the liter- 
ature before buying seed. He sug- 
gests not buying anything that .can- 
not be sold to a foreign customer. If 
a fanner decides to buy a variety, 
that is not approved for export, he 
or she should take core to control 
the plant and its pollen by planting 
buffer strips ana following proper 
2 handling procedures to prevent it

"We can learn some valuable 
lessons from the StarLink .prob- 
lem,' Commissioner' Hugoson 
said. "I khqw Minnesota farmers 
are among the world's best -grow- 
ers. We have an opportunity here to 
show -that we're also among the

Arctic Cat's 
Hometown Pride Tour 

Grey clouds, fog^and some- 
times a smokey haze drifted over 
snowmobile riders participating in 
the Arctic Cat Hometown Pride 
tour last weekend in Thief River 
Falls. Hoarfrost clinging (o 
branches and grasses slill poking 
through layers of snow; however, - 
created a dreamy picture for snow- 
mobtlers excited about riding with 
hundreds of other Arctic Cat 
snowmobile owners. The relatively 
warm temperatures also made the 
tours enjoyable. 

In all, over 350 people regis- 
tered for the event. They came 

from all over the United Slates and 
Canada. These people who filled 
local motels, restaurants and 
lounges demonstrated their pride 
in ownership in many ways. All 
drove Arctic Cat snowmobiles. 
Some wore green and block. Some 

• came to Thief River Falls as if ; 
they .were on some great pilgrim- 
age. Matt Lindbcrg of Appleton, . 
Wise, wore his pride not on his 
shirt sleeve, but on his arm. A 

■ green and black tattoo on his left 
shoulder proclaimed "Arctic Cat." 

'He said he-plans to have an even 
bigger tattoo placed on his back 

for next year's Hometown Pride 

The event kick-off was the Icc- 
Brcaker reception held at the 
National Guurd Armory in Thief 
River Falls. During the reception, 
Arctic Cat officials unveiled the 
new 2002 ZL 600 SS snowmobile. 
That some snowmobile was the 
subject of a drawing, and the win-, 
ner was Tom Hatfield of Fairmont. 
The new snowmobile features 
Smart Ride Suspension system. 
The burnt orange color of the 
snowmobile was a surprise to most 
of the crowd-as it was different 

from the traditional green and 
black colors of Arctic Cat. 

The Hometown Pride Tour was 
an enjoyable event, which provid- 
ed snowmobilcrsjrom throughout 
the United States an opportunity to 
see where Arctic Cat snowmobiles 
ore madcand lourthe country- 
side, and visit with other Arcuc 
Cat snowmobile owners.

boys' high school- hockey tourna-

when Thief River Falls took 
Crookston down "a notch with a 5-3 
win at the Huck Olson. Memorial 
Civic Center. 

- Crookston came into the game 9-

ning' performance at the Grand

It took Thief River Falls coach 
Rick Yanke a few moments to 
respond to questions from a reporter 
following the Prowlers' 41-27 dual 
meet high school wrestling win over 
Roseau Friday - a victory that put 
his team ot 8-1. He was finally 
asked, "Is there a problem? Aren't 
you happy with the way your team 
wrestled tonight? "No, I'm thrilled 
with the wdy we wrestled," he said, 
"It was an outstanding performance. 
It's iust that I'm find^of sheuf 
shocked that we're 8-1." 

It's been a long, hard climb for 
the Thief River Falls wrestling pro- 
gram. After being dropped, the sport 
was re-introduced in 1987-88. 
Success, especially team-wise, has 
been hard (o come by. Until now. 

The Prowlers did a major come- 
from-behind thing the previous 
night in a 36-22 win at Fertile- 
Beltrami. Against Roseau in their 
- deIayed-2000-01 home-opener,- the- 
opposite happened as Thief River 
Falls, thanks to a pair of forfeits and 
a couple of pins, bolted to a 27-0 
lead, then watched the Rams pull 
within 27-22 before putting it away. 
"Last night, and tonight, really 
did it for this team," saia Yanke, in 
his third year as the Thief River 
Falls coach. "The kids really jelled. 
-They did whatever they needed to- 
do to win the two matches." 

Colt Bergeron and Mike Hagen 
recorded first period pins at 1 12 and 
125, respectively, to go along with 
open weight forfeits at 103 and 1 19 
for a quick 24-0 scoreboard spread. 
And when Beau Abrahamson added 
a decision at 130, it was 27-0. 

Roseau broke, into the win col- 
umn with a wild 22-14win by Noel 
Barrett over Chris Lian at 135. Lian 
was down 1 CM after one period and 
trailed 19-9 in the third before

deficit to register a pin at 5:57.

-putting- together --a-rally that -hod- 
Barrett on his back when the final 
horn sounded. 

Kevin Peterson, Jeradan Otto and 
Benji Ulman then strung together 
pins at 140, 145 and 152 to pull the 
Rams within 27-22. 

Jon Swanson -stopped the 
Prowlers' bleeding with a 9-5 deci- 
sion at 160 - trading five escape 
points for a shot a takedown/pin 
combination against Steve Waskul. 

Aric Berg then clinched the win 
with a five-point technical fall at 

171 that provided the Prowlers with 
a 13-point, 35-22 cushion beading 
into tne'iinal two matches. 

Darrin Momerak added a little 
excitement to the night for the 
Prowlers^ when he erased a 10-2 
third period deficit by registering a 
pin that came with just three sec- 
onds left in his 189-pound match 
with Jake Waterworth. ' 

"Darrin kuid of capped it off for 
us," said Yanke. "He works hard. He 
never gives up, no matter what the 
score is, and he's strong enough to 
wear down most. 189 pounders." 

Momerak's comeback produced 
the biggest response of the night 
from one of the largest Thief River 
Falls wrestling crowds in recent 
memory. "It was a fantastic crowd - 
unbelievable," said Yanke. "We ran 
out of programs about 15 minutes 
before the varsity match even start- 

The Rams even lost a team point *~ 
at 189 with an unsportsmanlike con- 
duct coll against the Roseau bench. 
. Dcvin Brandt of the Rams closed 
out the night with a second period 
heavyweight pin:

this week will be a Thursday dual on

issue doesn't mean we should gloss over it. . .
